Methane is 80 times more effective than carbon dioxide at trapping heat in the atmosphere.
Change is coming, but not from the generation that currently holds positions of power.
There's concrete tradeoff logic lurking beneath the numbers and market abstractions.
Humans hate to surrender, but this clearly makes good sense.
Our clean energy needs to be sourced responsibly right from the get-go.
A grim warning for the future of Iceland's glaciers.
Phrases like "Global warming" and "climate change" don't carry any weight.
This is doubly worrisome on the heels of the recent UN climate change report, which gave humanity an urgent deadline to cut carbon emissions: just 12 years.
New research published in Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences used survey data from 2 million Americans to examine the links between climate change and mental health issues.
Most of us will still be alive then. Maybe.
New insights into the role of water vapor may help researchers predict how the planet will respond to warming.
Scientists think constructing a miles-long wall along an ice shelf in Antarctica could help protect the world's largest glacier from melting.
By being someone else, and seeing and discovering the world through the eyes of other people, that can only increase our empathy... and decrease our own egocentric view of the world.
Environmental concerns have caused some to opt-out of reproduction, both to help the planet and to protect their would-be children.
An hour away from Area 51 in the Nevada desert, this solar power plant "banks" energy in a way that could be replicated across the world.
Global warming and climate change is already reshaping coastlines due to higher waters. Pretty soon our next big cities will have to be at sea. But how will they make sustainable food?
Only a radically new tax system, one that affects everyone’s bottom line, can compel the environmental transition in consciousness that we so clearly need.
Thousands of scientists from 184 countries have endorsed an open letter that outlines some of the Earth's most pressing environmental problems.
“These facts have been presented time and again, year after year, for decades,” DiCaprio says. “Quite simply, we are knowingly doing this to ourselves."
A new study shows how one dietary change in the U.S. could make a 46%-plus dent in greenhouse gas reductions.
A pioneering study provides a detailed look at how the U.S. economy will suffer from climate change.
A new genetic test could improve the palm oil industry and reduce deforestation.
Is it good science in practice or just a smokescreen?
Methane gases from livestock production is contributing to the acceleration of global warming. Is a plant-based diet a smart way for individuals to curb the effects of climate change?
US scientists fearing for Earth's climate future begin testing solar geoengineering. The consequences may be terrifying — which is exactly why we need these small-scale experiments.
The European Geosciences Union predicts that over 70% of glacier volume in the Everest region could be lost by 2100. One man has engineered a solution so that life in these regions can go on.
The spreading of misinformation and doubt has undermined support for climate change. Despite broad consensus from climate scientists that humans are largely responsible for climate change, only 27% of Americans think there is agreement. New research points to a possible way to "vaccinate" against this misinformation.
The feud between some of the Rockefellers and ExxonMobil has intensified.
How did earlier records get it so wrong, and why do scientists believe they're right this time?
